Falling in Love with Life

Ah – this fall has been fast and furious! I can’t get over how life has changed so much this past year. I haven’t done an update in a while, so here you go!

First off, the hubby and I spent so much of our summer back and forth between my Great Aunt’s convent and home. This picture is from her birthday! Darin made all of the sisters his famous stew and they LOVED IT!!! UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_649.jpg

I ended the summer with speaking at an amazing conference for Give That Girl a Mic ministries. I spoke on Abigail and it was such a moving conference on ALL levels! UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_40c.jpgUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_40b.jpg

I had some amazing support there. I’m truly thankful for the women in my life!

The fall was pretty darn amazing and filled with so much family, fun and LOVE! We also welcomed a new puppy into our little family! Bloggin’ world, meet Mistletoe Ferdinand Addis! He has fit right in and has brought so much love into our home!

Family time is ALWAYS a great time! I love that our whole family will come together to show support for the littles in our lives! We enjoyed cheering on sweet Kenley for band!

I have a pretty awesome family!

Sister Celine came into town for a visit! I love her so much – I cannot even explain to you how important my Great Aunt is to me. She is my best friend and my hero!

Right before Thanksgiving, we were able to celebrate the holidays in such a beautiful way!!! We attended the Harvest Gala that the Sisters of Saint Francis put on to raise money for their convent. We had SO much fun!

It was nice to dress up a little and enjoy fall/winter festivities with our best friends!

Thanksgiving was super chill for us. We ended up just staying home with the pups and eating an amazing meal from the Honey Glazed Ham place! It was SO nice and relaxing. We hadn’t been able to just relax and enjoy family time (just us two) in a while!

How was your fall? What do you have planned for the Christmas holidays? I can’t wait to hear all about it y’all! Enjoy the season and enjoy family, life and LOVE!! God is good!

You can grab those cute snake skin boots from Shoe Dazzle! They are ADORABLE and so comfortable! And that cute sweater I wore on Thanksgiving at SHEIN! SO SOFT and perfect for snuggles and relaxing.

Belif Aqua Bomb Review

The older I get, the more I am trying to really get my face cleansing routine down. I def see my skin and face starting to age, so I have been on the hunt for something to help this aging old lady here! 😉  On my quest to commit to a regimen, I tried out Belif Aqua Bomb and Knockdown Bomb.

The Belif Aqua Bomb is a hydrating toner that is known to be a lot more different than other toners that tend to dry out your skin. I’ll be honest, I am impressed with it not appearing to dry out my skin. The only problem I have with this is that the third ingredient is alcohol. I try really hard to make sure my products are clean and I’m honestly a little worried with how a product with alcohol isn’t drying my skin out like most toners do. This is a scary mystery to me. Maybe I’m being a little dramatic here and should just be happy for a toner that leaves your skin feeling hydrated and cleansed —–BUT, if you know me….you know I won’t do that. I’ll be researching more on this product before I add it to my everyday regimen, but for now I will just say that this product is light weight and leaves your skin feeling really good. If that’s enough for you, feel free to check it out for yourself!

So far, I am loving this product. I’m still not completely “sold” or happy with the ingredients, but I am definitely more comfortable with the ingredients in this than the Aqua Bomb by Belif.

All in all, I won’t be adding either of these to my nightly regimen, BUT I am definitely not opposed to using Knockdown Bomb from time to time. Maybe on my facial scrub nights!

 

Finding a good face cleaner is SO important for us aging gals. Especially, if you are still in the trying to conceive season, which I am. It’s important for me to make sure what I am putting on my skin is healthy, clean and as natural as possible. Our hormones need CLEAN! Hope this review helps you decide if either of these products are what you need in your routine!
